Look, I watched the video and you own a horse but don't know how to ride bc you haven't bothered to either take lessons or read any books about riding. You don't own/wear a helmet, which is foolish. I didn't give you ANY advice about engaging the hind quarters of your horse, which I am sure means nothing to you, yet you tell us that you ride a horse that you cannot control at the canter, but ride bridle-less at the walk and trot?!?!? I have NEVER ridden ANY of MY horses bridleless and bareback, and I had several VERY safe horses that I trained and owned for over 20 years. Lynn Palm trained "Rugged Lark" and showed demos for 10 years bridle-less. You are NO Lynn Palm.
It sounds to me as if you THINK you know much more about horse training than you actually do, and are looking for everyone to admire your mare and admire you.
There are many people just like you that want the same applause. There are many people who frequent this forum who are geniunely concerned about the safety of people who are having problems with their horses, and you have already gotten some VERY GOOD advice.
Quit wearing your feelings on your sleeve. You don't respect authorities on the subject of horse training, or you may have mentioned your favorite trainer. You are looking for Free advice, which you have already been given. I am not being mean to suggest that YOU WILL get injured with this horse. With MY training, and the training of the others here who have given you good advice, this mare could turn out well.
